Rihanna surprised fans when she hopped on PARTYNEXTDOOR’s latest album, PARTYMOBILE, and was featured on his song “Believe It.”

As we know, the Bad Gyal has been taking a break from music, and shifting her focus. When she did return to music, she made history. According to chart data, the single just entered the Billboard’s Hot 100. at number 23. on the charts. This makes Rihanna’s 51 top 40, passing The Beatles. It also passes Jay Z who has 50 Top 40 hits.

This feature comes nearly 4 years after Rihanna’s last one. There’s been a lot of talk of her new album, R9, but she has yet to give fans a release date.

One things for sure, Rihanna’s music is missed and more importantly, appreciated! She has now charted on the Hot 100 in each of the last three decades (2000s, 2010s and 2020s).
